“Writing has always been my passion in life. It has always been a hobby to me though. Thanks to some unfortunate luck in my life, I am now able to focus full time on my writing, and this is the result of the fruit of that labor.”  – Joshua Cook

Joshua Cook was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, late in 1977, and this where he spent most of his life. There have been short bursts throughout his life where he has spread his wild oats to other parts of the United States, though.

Briefly Josh lived in Arizona and a brief – dark – time in Indiana and Ohio, before finally landing in Washington. Joshua welcomed the most beautiful little girl, Briare Octavia, into the world on June 20, 2011. He now calls Snohomish his home where he lives with his girlfriend and his laid back Spanador dog, Sam Dogg. Soon, Josh hopes to add Briare to his happy little family and make it whole.

After many years of writing non-fiction, news, and various other articles, Josh decided to poke around in fiction – and loves it. This is when he created the zombie series Zombie A.C.R.E.S., which spawned its first book in 2012.

Besides his fiction writing, Joshua Cook continues to work as a freelance writer and enjoys the varied work it brings. Josh is always accepting new clients and looks forward to working with many new clients in the coming years.

As an indie writer, Josh understands the importance of being able to get word of your project out to the masses. That is why he created FreeBookDude.com, which he now runs with his girlfriend. FreeBookDude.com lists a free Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook book every hour of every day. Unlike many of the other ‘free book’ sites out there, Josh keeps the focus of FreeBookDude.com on the indie writer. Not only through listing free book promotions for free, but also allowing authors and readers to meet each other through guest posts, interviews and reviews.
 

 
AiZ: Alice in Zombieland (Complete Saga) takes place in a world that is much like our own. The sky and water are blue just as the grass is green. Every day, people are going about their business, most just trying to make ends meet. Politicians still get on the television and lie to cameras and the good people of the world.

This world has one stark difference from our own – the living, and talking, dead. This is not an apocalyptic scene of destruction and despair (yet!), but hope for the living is dwindling with every waking moment.

After a recently deceased employee of Roslun Global, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world blows the whistle on grotesque and disturbing experiments going on behind closed doors, the whole world changes forever.

Nine years later, Roslun Global’s leader, Richard Roslun, is on the verge of perfecting the Second Birth Serum. The Second Birth Serum is meant to be Roslun’s rebirth, but he needs a very special specimen to complete it.

Alice is a young girl babysitting her little brother when her life got destroyed. Now she is a prisoner in a Roslun facility and it is up to her sister and horror geek to save her life. If they are too late, poor Alice will be left in the twisted hands of Richard Roslun and become his next undead experiment.
 

 
Joshua’s Cause:

On the back flap of my latest book, I ask ‘What would you do to save someone you love?’ Now it is time for me to answer that question myself.

I am father to one of the most beautiful little girls to ever grace planet Earth. While she was born on June 20, 2011, I just found out in April 2012, that I am her father. I have constantly asked to become a custodial guardian (joint custody), but for whatever reason, her mother has refused to allow that opportunity. Her mother has given me less and less time with her, as well as giving me absolutely no say in the way my daughter is raised or cared for.

My family has had to fight tooth and nail just to be able to see my daughter, and will continue to fight. This story is all too common for fathers around the world. The idea that most fathers are deadbeats or simply do not care about their children is wrong.

To help other families going through difficult times, I will donate a percentage of all money I make from Zombie A.C.R.E.S. books and merchandise to children’s charities. I feel very lucky to be in a place where my family can choose to donate money to help others. There are far too many families that do not have that luxury.
